I take issue with your methodology. I'm just offering criticism.

I would do it by the developer's country of origin:

 

North America (10)

 

Kratos

Ratchet & Clank

Jak & Daxter

Cole MacGrath

Evil Cole MacGrath

Fat Princess

Nathan Drake

Sly Cooper

Sweet Tooth

Big Daddy

 

European (4)

 

Radec

Sackboy

Sir Dan

Nariko

 

Japan (6)

 

Dante

PaRappa

Raiden

Spike

Toro

Heihachi

 

I've said this many times already: Ideally, the game would have a 40-20-40 distribution. Right now, it's at 50-20-30 but with a lot of plausible Japanese characters on the way, like Kat, Wander, Ryu Hayabusa and an FF rep.

Yeah that's a horrible way to gauge popularity.... There are 5 Americans for every 1 Japanese. Sales are the worst way to indicate who is more popular unless you adjust it. Tekken sold around 3 million copies in American and around 1 million in Japan, thus it's technically more popular since with the adjustment it would have sold 5 million.
